European Digital Learning Network (DLEARN) Italy

The European Digital Learning Network – DLEARN – aims to embrace the challenges brought by the digital revolution in terms of digital skills mismatch, toward an inclusive digital society. The 47% of Europeans is not properly digitally skilled – yet in the near future 90% of jobs will require some level of digital skills and numerous opportunities in terms of jobs that are going to shape the labour market. Our aims are characterized by 4 key-words: SHARE, CONNECT, MULTIPLY, ENHANCE. DLEARN is a collector of practices and ideas, gathering diverse organizations in Europe to reflect, think and trigger new initiatives, toward the valorisation and the enhancement of digital learning. The network was born from the initiative of 20 different organizations from all over Europe, active in the field of education and digital learning at various levels. Among others DLEARN members are: – Associations – Educational Centres (adult education) – Training Centres – ICT education services providers – ICT experts – NGOs – SMEs – Universities -Vocational Schools – Adult training centre

 – Development of innovative educational tools through game-based approach, mobile applications and interactive platforms to engage learners.
